    Huffy Slider

    Couple of my friends are starting to get into huffy sliders there pretty fun but you can only ride them properly down hill otherwise you cant really control how much they slide..

    Considering motorizing one in the next few weeks has anyone had any experience with a motorized one ?

    its not motorized yet but have a spare engine from my dads old lawn mower 4hp 187cc haha shouldn't be too slow. it will be rear wheel drive 100% i think the whole bike would have to be custom made if you wanted to do it fwd ? defeats the purpose of a drift trike

    true i've never seen somebody try to motorize them and keep it fwd guess its just too difficult because theres not really room for your feet and a engine ?
    should be good fun if all works out ill bring it down to some meets just for a laugh. Also want to try putting some small rubber wheels on and see if i can get abit of smoke out of them.

    It's Tony!

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    I wonder if you could get nice DC motor and some batteries? That would be easier I think.

    This sport is really kicking up lately, I'm even considering getting into it. Already have most the parts to build one, just need the time.
    If I do make one, anyone want to do something like this
